    The right to own a flat by every Singaporeans would be guaranteed by the government whichever their political persuasions are.

    Whether we live in a shoe-box or a 4-room highrise is immaterial.

    House ownership is the holy grail and the basis this great nation is built on.

    saw this from another forum....

    this person income is 80262. taxable income is 78962. what is he screaming about? think his is not regular income, and who in this world would be so benevolent to loan him????

    with this income (stable/not-fix), CPF would not grant him HLE. once salary is above $3K and they really say NO and means NO. they really go by the books in this case. I know it cause I was a victim too!

    I remember penning a letter to HDB/CPF citing that I'm a citizen drawing a salary marginally above S$3000 at point of time; whom had proudly serve the SAF with my precious 2years, and did my reservist for another 13cycles and pay TAXES to the IRAS. they just reply 'we are sorry. you have exceeded monthly salary of S$3000... period' Suck Thump

    sadly, his old father contribution to this country is forgotten and his son has to struggle to find a roof together with him


    i like this sentence Thank you for your contribution towards nation building

    People learn from Hong Kong and other similar. From very big -> big -> small -> very small -> mickey mouse -> shoebox houses. Each year the shoebox unit floor area gets smaller than the previous year. Consumers get used to it.
    When people get used to paying a lot for shoebox unit (in the future 20sq m?) then that becomes the new norm.

    But that happens only in places where powerful developers seem out of control.
